Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorbikes and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also difficult to secure when shipped. However, it turns out that most of it depends on how we do it and how much prior experience with transport we have gathered. It is feasible to ship a motorbike or a moped without difficulties, no doubts about that. The way it will be secured depends on the type of shipment. Thanks to some valuable tips you will prevent any damages, and dents that may happen if a scooter or motorcycle is not properly cared for.

When you are shipping the motorcycle on a trailer you will need four belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer that is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already is equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is essential to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed hook will not open up accidentaly during the shipment.

It is also worth looking at the sharp angles or objects that may possibly cut the belts and make the safe transport impossible. It's also feasible to transport a motorbike inside a van. The protection and equipment obligatory to keep the motorbike installed safely in one place will not differ too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to secure the insides of the car and other objects that may be transported next to the motorcycle.

There are also platforms that attached to a truck or van, can let you ship your motorcycle not occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Do not forget to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will be sufficient to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden platform for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a van could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause serious damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
